How to Draw Timon
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Timon from Walt Disney's The Lion King. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a big circle on the page. This will be the basic shape for the Timon’s head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Timon's facial features later on.
Step 3: For guides for Timon's eyes, draw two circles sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The circle on the right should be thinner because of perspective.
Step 4: Below the horizontal construction line, draw a big oval as a guide for Timon's nose. The right side of the nose should graze the right side of the main circle.
Step 5: On the lower left side of the circle, draw a shape similar to the letter U with a line over it as a guide for Timon's mouth. Use the construction lines as a guide to draw the top line that extends from the vertical line under the nose to the left side of the horizontal line. Then draw the arc underneath.
